State Board Community College Code 200.98 states that a college shall not employ two or more persons concurrently who are closely related by blood or marriage in positions which would result in one person of such family relationship supervising another closely related person or having substantial influence over employment, salary or wages, or other management or personnel action pertaining to the close relative.  In accordance with this directive, Stanly Community College will not hire, promote, or otherwise place persons who are closely related by blood or marriage in positions where supervision or influence could occur.  It is the intent of Stanly Community College that hiring and advancement is done on the basis of individual merit, without respect to race, gender, religion, national origin, or any other factors not involving professional qualifications and performance.
